Domain separation in Skill Management app is configured to apply to all features of the
application. Separation of data is configured along with separation of logic and process. Domain
separation enables you to separate data, processes, and administrative tasks into logical
groupings called domains. You can then control several aspects of this separation, including which
users can see and access data.
Support: Level 1
Domain separation is supported in this application. Not all ServiceNow applications support
domain separation; some include limitations on the data and administrative settings that can be
domain separated. To learn more, see Application support for domain
The Skills Management application enables you to track and organize skill data of service agents
and employees in a domain separated environment. The skill data can be used for skill-based task
assignment, skill gap analysis to identify coaching and training needs, career growth planning,
workforce optimization and skill-based hiring. All skill related tables support domain
separation so that the people with skill user, skill manager and skill admin roles can view only
the skill and related tasks within the (tenant) domain to which they belong.
How domain separation works in Skills Management
Domain separation is supported in Skill Management with no explicit setup or configuration
requirements. Skills, skill categories, skills levels can be created in separate domains,
including the global domain. When domain separation is implemented, people with skill app
roles can view skill information only in the domain assigned. Domain and
Domain Path columns are available for all Skill tables provided with the
base system. The Domain column contains the name of the domain to which
the event or alert belongs, and the Domain Path column contains the
unique domain identifier.
||User skill information
||Main skill table
||Define skill categories
||Define skill level type
||Define skill level
||Define skills contained within skills
||Task skill information
Note: If the domain column is not shown, click the Update Personalized
List icon and add the required column. You can also add the domain path column, if
- A Skill Manager that belongs to the Acme domain creates a skill and wants to view and associate it to user in the Acme domain. A user must
belong to the Acme domain, its parent domain, or the global domain to view the skill record.
- A Skill Manager that belongs to a parent domain tries to view a skill in a child domain. The user of a parent domain can view a skill record
of the parent as well as all child domains of that parent.
- A Skill Manager that belongs to a parent domain wants to create/associate a skill on behalf
of another user in the Acme domain. A user must belong to the same domain as the user for
which the skill record is created.
- A Skill Manager wants to associate a record for an integrated application in the Acme
domain. A user must belong to the domain of the integrated application from which a record is
- A Skill Manager has access to multiple domains but wants to update a record with content
within a specific domain. The domain specified for the current record drives the functionality
of that record and reference fields.
